In 2006, NBC/Universal became interested in bringing sports commentator Al Michaels to NBC Sunday Night Football. Michaels was under contract with Disney owned ABC. So, negotiations began and Disney CEO Bob Iger, who had long wanted to bring Oswald back to Disney, offered a trade for Oswald The Lucky Rabbit. And, so, a successful negotiation was made and Oswald made his way home.
